What to Remember When You Buy Shirts


Looking for clothes that fit is not as easy as you think. Is it not frustrating to buy pieces that are either too tight or too loose? To help you pick, here are some of the factors you need to consider:

Measurement

When looking for a shirt, your primary focus is on the shoulders, chest, waist, and sleeves. You should take note of the exact numbers for these areas so that it is easier for you to determine the right shirt.

Design

Understandably, short-sleeved shirts are casual while long-sleeved ones are corporate or formal.

Colour

If you have a light complexion, go for white, creams, and other light shades so that you do not look pale. The opposite applies if you have dark skin, which means that you should stick to dark tones. The goal is to choose shirts that work well with your skin tone.

Accessories

You could spruce up the top by adding a few adornments. For long-sleeved shirts, you will need stylish cufflinks and a cravat to spice your outfit up a bit.

To make sure you buy shirts that actually fit you, it is better to have them custom-made. This way you can be sure that it hugs your body well. So, get in touch with us at The Butch Clothing Company today!
